Photo Almanac-Jan. 24 to Feb. 1, 2016

Another week flew by already! Here we are  in the first week of February, and once again I am frantically trying to get caught up with my blog posts…not to mention checking out the other awesome blogs I enjoy.

Gallery one: Birds

The last week in January was a cold one with snow still on the ground from last week’s storm. As a result, food for the birds wasn’t easily available,  so they were looking for supplements. It turns out that they love the little bite-sized bark butter bits, as you can see from some of the pictures in this gallery.

If you are a bird lover, you might want to check out the bark butter bits at the store that supplies your bird food. We purchase bags of Jim’s Birdacious Bark Butter Bits (with calcium) at our neighborhood WILD BIRDS UNLIMITED store. Can’t vouch for the flavor personally, since I’m more inclined toward brownies or some other chocolatey treat for my snacks, but the birds sure love them. The pictures are proof of that!

Gallery two: Land and Riverscapes

So were the birds the only evidence that it has been a cold week? Take a look at this gallery of pictures of the river for more evidence. That chunky ice looks pretty cold, and the sky is grey and mostly overcast, typical of our January weather.


Finally: Two favorites from this week

To close this week’s Almanac, here are two of my favorites:

That’s it from the south shore of Lake Erie for the last week of January. Please stop by in a day or two for some February pictures. Meanwhile, wherever you live, whatever the weather, get out on a trail near you, take some pictures, and find a way to share them with some friends. That’s what I’m doing.
